colonel allen mutt looked like he lost in florida. he was a conservative. he lost. i think white guys can be conservative and win if they are good candidates and they make good ideas that are repealing. democrat, republic. this obsession with welling the ticket has to be all white or all black or brown, white, i just think it's silly. you are nodding your head. you want a color coded ticket. >> no. you are talking about racial bean counting. you are way way lost on this one. i don't get it you are so smart. look at the numbers of what came out tuesday and it looks like huge victory among whites for romney but loses the election. he had a plus 27 advantage among white men. still couldn't put him in the oval office. if you are thinking of it strategically and you want republicans to win. you have to be more inclusive and especially with the rapidly emerging latino population. >> do you think considers could have beaten barack obama? >> i don't know that she could have beaten him. she is closely identified with the bush administration. you were just pointing out they left some baggage on the
arabs the oil and jews the electoral college. [laughter] they were cluttered in swing states in florida >> -- >> norm, you're going to respond to the diamond in the rough. >> right, so it protects small minorities because it was protects them, and finally, the idea that who is going to be the leader of this country will be a tie and that so many tens of millions of people are disenfranchised because they live in a blue state or a red state. my thought was, and i think it's just controversial that if you awarded by federal statute or institution, what the order would be, one electoral vote to the winner of the popular vote, that would eliminate a tie, and it would make everybody feel that that -- if they wanted to feel that way, that makes everyone feel they were part of the process, even if they live in a 70/30 swing state, red or blue, well, i went in and vote. >> yeah. have you thought about the issues? >> yeah. you know, a couple points ben made. first is it's a rare election that is not decided in some fashion at the margins. yet, it does result in an electoral college bonus. ronald

the president's trip. allen west keeps up the fight in flo florida. and new jersey gets some love from the vp. after two recounts and two hearings, patrick murphy remains the unofficial winner in the contest for florida's 18th congressional district. murphy's lead is just outside the 0.5 that would trigger a recount. they continued to count ballots after a noon deadline passed. murphy's campaign declared itself the winner based on the deadline past while west's campaign showed no sign of conceding. vice president joe biden toured storm damaged new jersey yesterday reassuring residents the federal government won't forget about them. biden spent his summers at the jersey shore as a boy and had this to say. >> so as the president is up here with the governor, we're not going anywhere, governor. we're not going anywhere, and you have a homeboy in the deal who gets it. >> and speaking of the garden state, new jersey governor chris christie stopped by "saturday night live" this weekend to talk hurricane recovery in his famous fashion fleece. >> i'd like to thank the red cross and first responders.
, congressman-elect murphy of florida and tea party star congressman alan west only just conceded the race yesterday and joining us is congress-elect horseboard of nevada. thank you very much for joining us. first, apologies to you. we have had this breaking foreign news and haven't as much time as we wanted and we wanted to introduce you and meet you ourselves. >> thank you. >> what are your top objectives, coming from nevada? you have big issues and changes in nevada that helped the president again to carry nevada. tell me about what your first, first objective is and in particular the fiscal cliff. >> absolutely. and thank you for having us on. our first priority here is focusing on job creation. you know, working across party lines with the president to get things done that need to get done like putting people back to work. the voters spoke very clearly in this election. that they want partisanship to be put aside. they want republicans and independents and democrats to work together to move our country forward, to grow our economy, to protect medicare and social security. as well as t
states have collected more than 30,000 signatures. each on petitions to secede. alabama, florida, louisiana, florida, texas leads the pack with more than 115,000 signatures by itself to, quote, peacefully grant the state of texas to withdraw from the united states of america and create its own new government. as "the washington post" dana milbank put it in a recent column, if obama were serious about being a good steward of the nation's finances, he would let them go. did you hear that? because many of those states are what dana milbank said are government takers, they take more in federal money than they pay in taxes. alabama gets $1.71 from the federal government for every $1 paid in taxes. louisiana gets $1.45 in federal aid for every $1 they pay in taxes. author of "bush's brain," and james braxton peterson associate professor of english at lehigh, and michael steele, former chair of the rnc and a political analyst here at msnbc. gentlemen, this is an extraordinary thing but let's talk about this, professor peterson, recent "daily beast" article you talked about using maps in

widows i had never seen -- >> in dc. >> in d.c. >> in florida, where we think there was a voter suppression effort, the african-american vote went from 11% to 15%. >> mark? >> two point. not to tap dance on mitt romney's campaign, but what was the bold idea of the romney campaign that would survive his candidacy? barry goldwater energize the thousands of people. he gave his party and new direction. george mcgovern did that. but i just do not think there was. once you do not have a bold idea, the candidacy is in peril. >> governor romney survived several primaries, tough debates to get the nomination. there is a lot of seond- essi. i know, he wrote about it today. >> he introduced to the nation this idea of a more strict constitutional conservatism. however, i do not think they ought to go around complaining about choice of candidates. they threw away senate seats that were absolutely slam-dunk republican in indiana and missouri, and the last cycle they throw away a slam dunk republican seats in maryland, colorado, and nevada. so, the left and the right of the party and all of it

. a controversial statement by a rising star in the republican party grabbed headlines this week. florida senator marco rubio who is a practicing catholic tried to walk the line between science and faith-based creationism. here's what he told gq. at the end of the day i think there are multiple theories and this i think this is what people should teach them all. i'm not sure we'll ever be able to answer that. this weekend i asked famed television scientist bill nye how old he thinks the earth is? >> 4 1/2, 4.5, 4 billion years old. so there are certain elements that were created in exploding stars, especially the big bang, and we rely on those elements for our everyday life in order to have the quality of life we have. but the idea is certain elements change from one element to another. the verb is they transmute and the classic is our good friend australian thee yum becomes row bit yum. and you can look at this ratio. the half lisle is 48.8 billion years. this is measured in laboratories. sometimes they will observe it for 15 years to get it exactly right. then you work backward to the age of th
a threatening e-mails to all woman in florida who may also be going after david petraeus, and she sends these also through a gmail account. and now they are shocked that they got caught. this is dumb and dumber. >> colby, you have a military and national security experience. your thoughts on this? >> war is hell, and obviously it has taken its toll on some of our top generals. look, nothing that general petraeus has done will detract from his record. what happened is still a little confusing. the investigation done by the fbi, and they determined that there was no question of loyalty or national security compromise. and they stopped. there is another aspect to this, the whole question of suitability in conduct. you can be a patriot, but if you are habitually to excess, that can be a problem with access to classified material. somebody has got to make a suitability decision without conduct. the justice department withheld that, and i don't understand why they did. >> margaret? >> usually these affairs are down clandestinely until they are not. love is fleeting, gmail isn't. we should all
reelection with 303 electoral votes with florida's 29 still undetermined and over 50% of the popular vote. the national journal hosted several panel discussions breaking down the road to results and looking at the implications for national politics and the congressional agenda. >> it turned out not to be as long night as people expected and we're going to talk about that today and why and look forward to how the president to make go forward from this victory which think is safe to say it was quicker and bigger than many people expected. would you like to tell us how this happened and -- why this happened and how? >> it was bigger than we expected. he really swept the battleground states. the only states that he lost that he had won in 2008, was north carolina which he had won by 14,000 votes in 2008. it was considered a fluke. what that tells us is that the set of assumptions that the obama campaign was operating on was correct. and a set of assumptions that the romney campaign was operating on was not. it's sort of make sense in a way sense obama's theory about the campaign turned out to
florida. why do i circle those? i'm going to slide this little barrier. the darker the colors, the higher the latino population. nevada, colorado, new mexico, florida, you can find other places as well up into the midwest. the republicans don't solve this problem. this is a crisis for the republican party. >> it certainly is. we're going to talk more about texas in a bit because i see that orange there. what about women? i know this war on women fight, a lot of people wondered whether it would be effective, but when it actually happened -- >> in a word, yes. >> romney did not make up that gap again. >> play the exit polls. nationally, less than half the electorate is men. governor romney wins it. but look, this is not rocket science. 53% of the electorate are women. they're going for president obama. if you're getting 55% among the biggest chunk, you are well on your path to victory. let's move it over. go through the battleground states. you start getting -- swing states, he's winning in then you come over here, this is the mother of all battlegrounds, welcome back from columbus. 2% of t
206. the only state has yet to call is florida. where president obama leads. he has won the popular vote. the 113th congress will be composed of a democratic majority in the senate with 53 democrats, a two seat increase, as well as 45 republicans and two independents. at least one of which will caucus with the democrats. in the house of representatives, returns will retain the majority. nbc news projects that once the votes are counted, republicans will hold 236 and democratics will hold 199 seats. nate silver, as reported here every night, correctly predicted the electoral outcome in all 50 states and the district of columbia, assuming florida tips towards president obama as it now appears it will. last night voters made history on the issue of same sex marriage, a marriage equalifity referendum has passed in maine and maryland and is on track to pass in washington state. those states become the first to approve same sex marriage through a ballot measure in our nation's history. and in minnesota voters rejected a state constitutional amendment limiting marriage to between one man a
was that they said they served him poorly. they gave him information that, especially in florida, they thought they had it and they didn't. so i think there will be a lot of monday morning quarterbacking. bottom line, campaign was certainly not good enough to win anything. hardly anything. today they concedeed florida. obama goes to re-election with 332 electoral votes, extremely decisive. he has a lot of clout. >> greg: the campaign is like buying a printer at staples. you know looks good in the box. slow to get started. once it started going it was pretty good. then near the end it got wiped out by hurricane sandy. >> eric: leave here, quickly, a long time fast you have watched the show, months ago i recommended eric bernstein who ran the campaign to step aside. after that, the obama camp rolling out of -- >> bob: would have made no difference. >> eric: we want to leigh you with dennis miller on o'reilly last night. things are so tough, so tough, miller had to make changes already. listen. >> i just want to tell you, give you the final word. this is no longer silk. my pocket squares are now
. some places not expected to return until at least tuesday. >>> we finally have a winner in florida. cnn projects president barack obama won the sunshine state and its 29 electoral votes. that's based on updated vote totals provided just before today's deadline. that boosts president obama's electoral vote to a total of 322. mitt romney got 206. 270 needed to win the white house. >>> a huge earthquake has struck myanmar just nine days before president obama is due to visit. the 6.6 magnitude quake was centered about 226 miles north of the capital. if he goes ahead with his visit, mr. obama would be the first sitting president to visit myanmar. >>> we've got a lot more planned for you this saturday night. here's what else we're working on. a shocking admission, shaking the entire intelligence community. it may end a brilliant career. but did it put the country at risk? some say the gop needs some new faces or face extinction. on the other side, minorities help reelect president obama. has he done right by them? we've got a political intervention for both sides. >>> plus, is bond too old?
miami-dade is done but a handful of florida counties are still counting votes from tuesday's election. time is about up, though. those counties have to report unofficial tallies in the state by noon tomorrow. the results will be certified november 20th. cnn has not declared a winner in florida yet. but democrats there have put the win in president obama's column. and mitt romney's team in florida told the miami herald their candidate lost the state. no rush, it's florida. if they get it within a week that's still pretty fast for them. >> they need to get their act to the. i feel like florida, on the lines thing, on the counting thing. we are in the technological age. it is time to move and fix it. that's my editorializing this morning. let's go back to the fiscal cliff. we also should get a little counter for the fiscal cliff. 53 days. christine's got an update on what it will mean if we hit it in 53 days. >> pretty alarming report out from the congressional budget office about this. it said in the post-election report on the fiscal cliff, it will lead to a recession and a spike in un
different things. get on the same page. host: let's hear from susan brita, florida. -- susan in tampa. caller: mitt romney is an honorable man. in the winter, in the spring, when the other side was thinking there talons into the democrats, romney was doing his best to get his party's nomination, so he never got his feet off the ground until june. so he is bitter. that is a natural human emotion that we all feel. it was such a devastating loss. i am hearing from republicans all over the country. they are depressed, distraught, heartsick. everybody has that feeling. mitt romney was a candidate for everyone. he did not single out the groups. he just wanted everybody to believe in america. i keep thinking about the story he told the crowd about cutting the flag that was on the shuttle in 1986 and i could see the electricity going through him. he loves america and wants us to love america too. host: to facebook -- twitter -- back to your calls, republicans on 00 only, on the future of your party. mark in arlington, virginia. caller: i think tim pawlenty is absolutely right. i would have vo
, florida, where they had the republican convention, to charlotte, fort bragg, back to charlotte, washington. that is 26 cd's. [laughter] but i have this image of lyndon johnson spinning in his grave at the idea that there is the president of the united states that has minimal interaction of congress, especially some of his own party. republicansorget and tea party people. forget them. just in his own party, wander around the hill, as all of you do all the time, and ask democratic members of congress, how much personal interaction do you have with the president? i hate giving political credit for anything, but they have that piece back in may that pointed out that the president, as of may, had not had a single conversation this year with the their kent conrad, chairman of the senate budget committee, where tom harkin, phone or in person, this year. now, you could talk about the party obstructionist, this and that, but if you are not talking to keep people in your own party. i checked with the unofficial historian of the contemporary presidency. the president played golf 104 times. the know h
record. on election night he tried to recreate florida 2000 on fox news by insisting that the network fox was wrong to in calling the election for president obama. the number crunchers said, no, you are wrong. he made a fool of himself. still today he insists he is right. i would hope that nobody would give that guy a dollar to spend in any future election. i think his career in politics should be over. not that i feel strongly about this, but he also has this enormous conflict of interest. he is getting all of these people's money, spending it for mitt romney, then he is on fox news as a supposedly independent political commentator and is writing a column for "the wall street journal." there are so many conflicts there is a pleasure mind. host: and on the lecture circuit. guest: which, by the way, i am on that too. he has all kinds of things. his losing record is what points out that his time in american politics has come and gone. host: what is next for the political parties and the president? our guest is bill press. he concludes with these words -- there is a boundary to what luster a
electoral votes to 206 for romney. florida is still too close to call. as predicted, the popular vote is much closer. about 50% of americans voted for the president, while 48% chose romney. we have complete election coverage this morning, beginning with nancy cordes in chicago. she covered president obama's victory speech, which was just a few hours ago. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, norah and charlie. well, in the end, this race wound up just about exactly where the obama campaign had predicted it would, with the president sweeping almost every battleground state. today he returns to washington to begin the hard work of repairing frayed relationships with the other side after a bitter, sometimes petty campa n campaign. it was well after midnight when the president, vice president and their families hugged and waved to supporters from the stage at mccormick place after president obama declared victory. >> tonight, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward. >> this is a
night. they were convinced going into election day that they had numbers in florida, virginia, ohio and colorado. they were talking with their get out the vote people on the ground in those states, they were saying, yeah, we're finding people who hadn't planned to go out and vote, and we're finding lots of them. but there just weren't enough to combat the numbers the obama campaign had run up. what really probably killed and torpedoed romney's candidacy was this idea that the obama campaign portrayed him as a rich guy who didn't care about regular folks. even though the romney campaign tried to counter that by saying, well, he can help you even if he doesn't understand you, in the end, megyn, it just wasn't loud enough to breakthrough those negative perceptions. megyn: john roberts, thank you. >>> one well known political analyst is issuing a warning to the gop, that governor romney's loss will require serious soul searching to find out what went wrong. laura ingraham's here next with her take on last night and the next election. the new storm threatening some already hard-hit victi
. >> it took four days, but florida went for president obam abringing the final electoral college to 332 for the president and 206. and gary johnson scored tens of thousands of votes in key swing states and mixed up the race with those with razor-thin margins. how does he feel now? former governor of new england is here by skype. >> jamie: great to be with you. i really thought we would get more votes. we didn't have the resources to be able to tell, you know, where the votes were going to come from. but the polls would have said, we were guessing we were going to do better. it just got down to the wire and i think people bought into the fact that people have to vote for romneyor obama because it was going to be close. >> even so, with the top two contenders apparently so close. you scored more than 1.2 million votes in key swing states. 32,000 in colorado, 45,000 in north carolina, 47,000 in ojaio and in virginia, 30,000-plus. florida, nearly 45,000. these are states that were very, very scploas these two teams spent a lot of money and yet, tens of thousands of people had to have waited

look at the electoral vote now. it's over 300. 303. we still don't have florida officially called. you can see it's still left off. they are counting votes down there in miami-dade, i guess. or making it official. so he could conceivably add to the total. then you look at the national popular vote. and how close it was. still, president obama will win. there you see the different counties, republican and democrat. the yellow ones within 3%. >> electoral college landslide. popular vote is closer. he did win an he won in an impressive way. he got his voters to the poll polls, in record numbers, even though there was no organic enthusiasm behind that. that is sign of mature movement. young people, african-american, hispanics, they weren't caught up in the novelty and euphoria of 2008 hope and change. but the obama campaign spent money and time, five years, targeting them, persuading them and getting them out. romney did as well with the white vote as any other republican seeking the white house. he maxed out. he could haven't done much better. but he was getting a bigger slice of a shrink
. texas has a rate of 25.5% uninsured. georgia, 22%. louisiana, 22%. florida, 21%. this is a fifth of the public here doesn't have health insurance. so i guess in terms of how this plays out in the state house, i wonder if governors hold on to their seats once they reject something that would have a considerable human benefit. >> it will have a huge human benefit. it's not just the people who get health insurance. you know, there are hospitals in these states. today when people have no health insurance, they show up at the hospital and the hospitals have to treat them. and that cost at the hospital will bare it and pass it on to everyone else in the community. hospitals are looking at this and saying this is money that could help stabilize our finances so we don't have to charge everybody else so much money. i wouldn't be surprised if over the next few months, as the election is now passed, you hear more and more from hospitals if places like texas and oklahoma knocking on the door of the legislature saying, hey, what are you guys doing? this is a great deal for us. why are you tur

. in florida, percentage of hispanic voters went up to 70% from 14% 2008, and the composition of the hispanic vote changed and has grown very different than what it was just a few years ago with many more puerto ricans making up the share of this hispanic vote in florida. what that meant nationally was that despite all predictions, democrats were able to keep their edge in the overall electorate. a shock to many people that overall partisan composition of the electorate looked so similar to 2008 with democrats holding a six-point edge. the other big demographics story of tuesday's election of course was women. i mean, we had, our first goal after the first debate when romney did so well and obama did so poorly showed the gender gap almost closing entirely. i mean, it had to be a shock for a lot of democrats to look at that poll. there were other polls that showed the same thing. romney really made gains among women after that first debate, in party was seen as a little bit more moderate. the issues that came up i in the debate were not necessarily, very few social issues if you recall coming
. if you look at states like nevada and colorado, and virginia specifically northern virginia, and florida along the i-4 corridor, the changes to the electorate are facing the republican party in a stark way. president bush realized this and michael and his team and there was significant outreach to the latino community in understanding that the party needed to evolve in that some of those lessons were lost and the devicesive ideological primary that mitt romney made, proposed the dream act to beat rick perry has cost him in the election. there will be that conversation and a loud conversation in the republican party but look, that's what elections do. they teach you lessons. i think michael is right, the party will have that conversation internally and i believe they will be competitive moving forward because they don't have a choice. >> go ahead. >> i think it's a one-sided conversation because if you get 27% of the hispanic vote, you cease to be a national party moving forward. i think most smart republicans will get that. there will be disagreement on how you respond to that but this i
carolina was the only battleground state that romney won. >> that is correct. florida is still out. this year is turned out to be irrelevant. what did the republicans miss? >> practically anybody who was brown or black, procter we anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. was a case where the republican party is stampeding towards prevalence if they don't catch -- stampeding toward irrelevance up to then't catch new america and the changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama put together this new rising coalition and put together enough of the old democratic coalition to win. he got more than 70% of hispanics. young voters. if you vote once to twice as a democrat, history shows that there will be a lifetime democrats. the republicans are missing the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. this is becoming a majority- minority nation. this is probably the last time the republicans love a chance to win like this. >> let's talk about why this happened. how
carolina, florida virginia? >> all three of those states, plus indiana are comfortably out of the obama column where they were in 2008 and into the republican column. i think romney gets 279 to 281. >> i think this is premature. >> do you believe that ohio has been settled. >> no, i don't. we've got to be careful about calling things when we have 991 votes separating the two candidates and a quarter of the vote to count. >> karl rove said we should figure out what the deal is. >> the doubt that karl rove has attempted to place. >> you are comfortable with the call in ho i how? >> he's angry and pushing his finger in the air and looking sideways and looking mean and angry. >> that's awkward. >> they irradiated him as a rich guy who didn't care about ordinary people when he was on the side of ugly stuff about bain capitol and being a rich guy and i think he appropriately responded. >> this is mostly a tactical election. >> after they lose, it wasn't my fault, oh, romney, i tell you man, if i just had $800 million, maybe i could have done something with it. loser. i never get tired of thos

in florida to get 60% of the vote from hispanics and a larger percentage from african-americans, but you have to have a game plan and dedication and the resources and the commitment to show up, show respect and be there at all times, and i think that it can be done, but frankly, we need to change the scope of our energies and the scope of our commitments. >> you see, this is not an attempt by the republicans to do something and fail. it is the lack of the attempt of the republicans to do anything at all. the first state race, state race i ever worked on was the united states senate in seat in 1996. and i asked, you know, very naively, why don't we go to black churches? well, they will never vote for us. why don't we retreat to students and young people. they don't vote. well, here we are in 2012 and that is a completely different story and we have to make the attempt. >> but what i heard al say, and what president obama won because he promised free things and i don't want to misquote you there, but i'm not sure if it is promise of free things, because when i hear that people say that they vot
a difference in florida, virginia, nevada, and colorado? >> no. it wouldn't have made enough of a difference in this election. but if marco rubio is the presidential candidate, in 2016, and the party begins to advocate, enforcement, plus amnesty after enforcement, i think it will be a sea change. i think you will get a revolution of the hispanic vote. i think it will restore all this talk about how republics are demographickics ticket is nonsense. >> thank you as always. >> a pleasure. >> bill: factor tip of the day about you and christmas. the tip 60 seconds away. >> bill: i'm glad you are talking to the kids about thisi. lisa. zbloogt thinking why beed bus end >> bill: we can find no such evidence, charles. if you have it. please forward it to me. >> bill: wow, that is some great wife, tim. especially since the vegas show is sold out. the only one that still has seats is in houston. contend and lincoln number three and kennedy number one.

republican star florida senator marco rubio making a trip to iowa. what he had to say about rumors about a run for president in 2016. >> i think what happened is there are those who made promises to them. we have more government and a bigger government program that does this. if we tax one people more to pay for another group of people maybe that's the solution to the problems. here's the truth. big government doesn't help the people we are trying to help, it rurts them. martha: there are folks already camping out to be the first ones in the store for black friday. people are pitching tents. they have their electric and camping gears. they have all the comfort of home. >> we have most of the comforts of home. >> our family when they get done eating they will bring over food, we'll set a table up and we'll eat. martha: i can't figure it out. in search of a bargain they are on black friday. i wonder what it is they really -- >> there is a thing called the internet. a cease-fire thing between israel and hamas is close according to egyptian negotiators. that could allow a huge influx of weap

coming in, in ohio and virginia -- first it was virginia, and then in florida, there was a sense this could be an earlier evening than we thought. >> we looked at the demographics. pretty much across the board you had a good night on women, independents, you know, younger people, african-americans, latinos, asians, it was a pretty big sweeping area of people coming in to vote again for you guys. were you pleased about the level of the turnout? >> oh, absolutely. and the breadth of it, the question that was being raised on the other side was whether the obama coalition that served him so well in 2008 would come out again. and so one of the things we saw very early, and even before the polls closed when, you know, just looking at the turnout, was that we were getting strong turnout among the very groups you were talking about. and that was encouraging. >> the inevitable inquest into why republicans lost. if you were putting your strategist hat on and looking at their campaign, where do you think in the end they lost it? >> i think the problem for their republican party is that they
involved in a lot of places. >> they tried. >> they tried. most notably in florida. >> colorado, too, and other places and it blew up in their face. >> because marco rubio wasn't sharing the angle. so this time around they said, okay, we will not get involved. in some ways it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't because i'm not sure -- i don't know that stronger involvement from the nrsc, and the national republican committee, does that keep him from losing? >> but do they get punished for not having the guts to tell jim demint enough? you know what, your guys are doing this. or do they have to do it now? >> i think there will be -- we were talking about this off-air. i do think there is a reckoning within the republican party now to say, do you want to win or do you want to kind of preserve the righteousness of your principles among a smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller group of people. that's what the election showed. >> i bring this up. some senate republicans think i was being unfair this morning to mcconnell and coryn. the way washington worked 20 years ago, there w
